Wow... you listed Lovelight, Black Peter and Schoolgirl. We must have very different taste in GD.

I also disagree that there aren't epic versions of Dew or Wharf. It's all in the interpretation. I certainly don't think you can just give it a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. There are standard solos, and there are epic, mind-blowing solos where Garcia finds new territory to explore. "Epic" might be the wrong word, since it suggests a long journey, but still.

I'm just not a Pig fan, esp. the long-winded raps do nothing for me. The basic tunes are cool. Black Peter is the "debbie-downer" of GD, must have been a come-down at a show.

As for "epic" - I prefer YOUR descriptions on Truckin' from above: "awesome", "classic and beautiful", "insane", "gorgeous", "blistering" -- all more descriptive than epic. Wagner's Ring Cycle is an epic... guess I'm ranting about over-use of the word.

See here how everything leads up to this day
And it's just like any other day that's ever been
Sun going up and then the sun it's going down ...

I think those are some of the most powerful lyrics they've got! I don't see it as a downer ... well, if you think of it only in context of a guy lying around dying of a fever, I can see that, but to me, those are profound if simple-seeming lyrics ... talk about philosophy in a nutshell.
